What do we offer?
The hall is presented empty for you to set up as you like. Our furniture stores include modern padded chairs, folding tables and a fabulous set of child-size chairs and tables. The serving kitchen has lots of cutlery and crockery, plus child-friendly plates, mugs and bowls. There’s a bluetooth speaker system for your music. All you need bring is a bag for your rubbish and tea towels; we provide all the kit you need to clean up as we are a self-service hall. Hence the low hire charge!
We are covid-aware
Covid19 is still prevalent. We want to make sure that everyone feels safe when using the hall. Please do not attend if you are unwell, or if anyone in your house has something infectious – normal consideration!
The hall is spacious and airy and all the windows can be opened – fresh air is key to good health! We also provide hand sanitiser as well as good old soap and water, plus cleaning kit if you want to give anything an extra wipe down. The hall is professionally cleaned twice a week, and as always we ask hirers to leave it as they would wish to find it. Thank you.
How did we get here?
The hall is the village war memorial and contains two more – read all about our memorials and commemorations here. Founded in 1922 and so now in our second century, we value our history but we never stand still!
